Gourmet food and beverage festival “Tasty Australia” is back at Isetan KLCC in Kuala Lumpur in collaboration with The Model Cook (TMC), introducing 12 new and exclusive brands to Malaysia.

The brands range from premium seafood to gluten-free, dairy-free award-winning chai tea as well as household products, staying true to Tasty Australia’s mission to promote a healthy lifestyle through alternative foods that are value for money.

This year, one of the highlights is the introduction of a new sashimi-grade seafood brand named Dinko Tuna.

Using innovative freezing technology, its southern bluefin tuna is kept at -65°C within hours of harvest.

This process helps retain the rich flavours and satin-like texture of the tuna for that sashimi-worthy slice when you cut into it.

Ferguson Australia also makes its debut with its cooked and fresh southern rock lobsters, which are renowned for their premium quality and taste.

“With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we understand that people are concerned about exposed food, so this is one way that you can still enjoy sashimi in the comfort of your own home,” said TMC executive director Vivien Lee.

Lenswood Apples makes a return by bringing back a favourite — the Pink Lady — and the Miapple, which is the perfect snacking apple.

Back as well is the alluring Redlove apple.

At the festival, visitors can get their juice fix there and then.

This year, Tasty Australia features Conceptlabs’ range of eco-friendly household cleaners and sanitisers.

They are developed with a concentrated formula using 100% plant-based surfactants that are both anti-bacterial and chemical-free.

“Some cleaning products can be aggressive on our skin or leave behind residue that can come into contact with the foods we prepare.

“Conceptlabs’ products are a viable alternative for families,” said Lee.

Available also at the fair are Pure Origins and Buzz Honey products that specialise in single region, cold extracted raw Manuka honey.

Lee shared a pro tip for those looking to buy honey.

“If you are having honey regularly, then you can go with the +100 or +300 Pure Origins speciality honey, but if you’re looking to cure a scratchy throat, that’s when you start getting the +800 jars,” she explained.

Other than introducing the new brands, this year Tasty Australia also features several stellar South Australian brands including Monjava Coffee, Brasilia Coffee, Maggie Beer and Tucker’s Natural as well as products from other regions of Australia such as Fewster’s Farm honey, Brookfarm macadamia muesli and Truffle Hill premium black Perigord truffle oil and condiments.

The 8th Tasty Australia food fair is taking place now in Isetan KLCC and Isetan The Japan Store, Lot 10 food markets until Oct 6.
